    Product Description

    The Markbass Big Bang 500 pushes the boundaries of what a compact head can achieve in terms of punch, power and outright tone! Full featured but lightweight and compact the Big Bang 500 is the perfect partner of Markbass' lightweight cabs

    Here's what Markbass say about the Big Bang 500w Bass Head

    Just over a decade ago, Marco De Virgiliis started pioneering small, lightweight amps; the Markbass Little Mark heads started a new era in bass amplification, inspiring many other companies to follow their lead.

    Now, you'll be amazed that such a warm, rich and “explosive” sound comes from an amp smaller than our groundbreaking Little Mark heads! And—despite its small size—the Big Bang is packed with extra features that customers have been asking for: aux in, headphone output with level control, plus mute and VLE and VPF filters with footswitch control. Other features, already appreciated by Little Mark users, include a simple and effective 4-band EQ, effects loop, and level control and pre/post EQ switch for the XLR DI output.
